The film, in turn, is based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen and follows the story of a ballerina, Victoria Page, who joins an established ballet company. However, she ends up torn between the pursuit of her career at the company and the man she loves.

    The adaptation was both directed and choreographed by Bourne and set to the music of Bernard Herrman. In 2017, the production won Best Choreographer and Best Entertainment at the Olivier Awards.

    The production will be accompanied by New Adventure Orchestra; its orchestrations by Terry Davies. It will also showcase cinematic designs by Lez Brotherson, lighting by Paule Constable, sound by Paul Groothuis, and projections by Duncan McLean.
